Preston Open Day – how unlucky can you get?

Preston Open Day was so open it let all the rain in – probably the first we’d had in a month or so. This may have been good for the grass but no good for the picnic. Thanks for those volunteers and helpers shown here who braved the weather for an hour or so before we gave up on outside activities.

Consolation was a visit from the High Sheriff of East Sussex, Maureen Chowan, second right, who joined us for the Open Day and made us all feel special. Sorry we couldn’t have provided more of a spectacle but this is England and we take these setbacks on the chin.
